October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I partnered with Tree Classics to decorate one of their Classic Fraser Fir trees in pink to help bring awareness to the cause. I think you could stop anyone on the street and ask them how breast cancer has affected their lives and you’d get an answer. Virtually everyone has a story about how it’s happened to someone close to them, someone they know, or even themselves. One of my good friends went through a battle of her own and her story touched me deeply. It’s her story I think about when I do my own self-exams at home. Breast cancer has touched my own family with my aunt and my husband’s cousin. Decorating a tree to promote awareness of this cause in partnership with Tree Classics was special for me.
The tree I created was simple and understated, but still feminine with plenty of sparkle. I chose blush pink, pearl white, and dusty glitter ornaments to adorn the branches.
I used a baby pink ribbon as garland to dedicate the tree to the pink ribbon cause most are familiar with, weaving it through the needles and boughs.
Collaborating with Tree Classics to further awareness for a cause entrenched in lives today was an experience that made me think deeper about how it’s affected countless women and their families. This tree is pretty to look at, but cancer is anything but pretty. It is my hope that Tree Classics and myself can bring a little hope in the form sparkle and shine along with awareness to the families so deeply impacted by the burden of this disease.
